April is Stress Awareness Month, so this month, we’re focusing on all things relaxing and spa-inspired to create the best skin care regimen geared towards a stress-free month. Sound like your idea of a good time? To get in on the action, check out our super simple, stress-free, spa-inspired skin care routine, featuring our best face scrubs, best face masks, and best moisturizers, below.
Step 1: Exfoliate with a Face Scrub
When you head to the spa for a day of relaxation, oftentimes one of the first steps is exfoliation. Designed to help rid the surface of your skin of makeup, dirt, and impurities, face scrubs can be a real lifesaver when it comes to alleviating the appearance of dull, clogged, dry skin. When it comes to choosing your face scrub, we have you covered. Find your face scrub match below.
L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Nourish & Soften Face Scrub: This face scrub leaves skin feeling softer and smoother and looking more refined. Immediately, skin feels smooth and comforted, while skin feels nourished with continued use over time.
L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Purify & Unclog Face Scrub: This face scrub effectively removes dirt, oil, and impurities from the surface of skin and polishes away dead skin. With continued use over time, pores look tighter, unclogged, and less visible.
L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Smooth & Glow Face Scrub: This face scrub gives skin a glowing appearance immediately and leaves skin feeling baby-soft, smooth, and comforted with continued use over time.
Once you’ve chosen your face scrub, pull your hair back and apply the face scrub to dry skin. Gently massage the product into your face, neck, and décolletage with wet fingers, before rinsing thoroughly with lukewarm water. Avoid using super-hot water because, as good as it may feel, it can dry out your skin.
Step 2: Relax with a Face Mask
After you’ve exfoliated your complexion, why not treat it to a bit more TLC? We’re particular fans of face masks for the way they can help target a multitude of skin care concerns while still being gentle on your skin. With so many face masks on the market, you may find it difficult to choose just one, but don’t worry—that’s where multi-masking comes in. Simply look at the list of our best face masks below and choose one, two, three, four, or all five face masks for a one-of-a-kind stress-free, spa-inspired skin care routine.
L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Purify & Mattify Face Mask: This face mask is formulated with eucalyptus and can help draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and oils, and reduce the appearance of excess shine. Immediately, skin looks clean and clear.
L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Detox & Brighten Face Mask: This face mask is formulated with charcoal and can help draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and pollution, and reduce the look of dull skin. Immediately, skin looks brighter with a gorgeous glow.
L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Exfoliate & Refining Face Mask: This face mask is formulated with red algae and can help draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and oils, exfoliate dead skin cells from skin’s surface, and smooth imperfections. Immediately, skin texture appears refined and skin looks smoother.
L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Clear & Comfort Face Mask: This face mask is formulated with seaweed and can help draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and oils, reduce the look of imperfections, and gently cleanse stressed areas. Immediately, skin feels refreshed and comfortable and skin is clean and appears rebalanced.
L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Clarify & Smooth Face Mask: This face mask is formulated with yuzu lemon extract and addresses your complexion concerns for smooth, even and resurfaced skin by clarifying tone and improving skin texture.
Once you’ve chosen your face mask(s), apply an even layer to clean, dry skin and leave on for 10-15 minutes before rinsing with lukewarm water.
Step 3: Hydrate with Moisturizer
Just like at the spa, after every cleansing, scrubbing, or masking sesh, it’s of the utmost important to slather on moisturizer. Look for a water-based moisturizer, like the L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal to Oily Skin, L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal to Dry Skin, and L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Extra Dry Skin, all of which are formulated with hyaluronic acid and aloe vera water to help provide long-lasting hydration.
